Class Supply List

Screen Shot 2019-07-09 at 10.20.08 PM


I know how busy this time of year is and I want to help make it easier. I am giving the parents an option to pay a $30 donation to cover each student’s supplies.

You can start paying the $30 donation to the office at back to school night or anytime after school starts. I have already purchased these items for this year. If you would rather purchase them yourselves, they must meet the description I have listed below. It is more efficient for me to have all the supplies the same color and type.

I have already purchased the following items:

  • Colored pencils (24 pack) and additional art supplies
  • Plastic plain folders with metal paper holders and paper pockets. Blue, Yellow, Red, and Green. Folders are plain, no designs or images.
  • Spiral notebook, plain cover in the colors Blue, Yellow Red, and Green.
  • Composition notebooks-black, plastic front and binders
  • Scissors/Pencils/Erasers
  • Glue
  • Copy paper
  • Highlighter/Expo markers. Skinny black only 15-20.
  • Party supplies/Birthday desk
  • Prize bin: Fun stuff that cost less then $1 each
  • Reward stickers: various variety
  • Christmas/Mother’s Day gifts/Father’s Day gifts
  • Service project card material
  • Rendezvous supplies

Each student will still need to bring from home:

Headphones/earbuds-labeled with their name.
Pencil Box1 standard size pencil box, must be able to hold 3-4 pencils, one box of colored pencils, one glue sticks, 2-3 pens, 1-2 highlighters, etc.

Backpacks are not to be brought. ONLY lunch bags are needed if they are bringing a lunch from home.

Water bottles are optional for students to bring for their use during class time. Please make sure it does not leak or spill if knocked or tipped over…Sorry Stanleys 🙁

Lanyards are optional, I will provide them with a shirt clip.

Best dress (what you would wear to a wedding or church) or school uniform please. Please have your students in my classroom no later than 5:50 to be ready to head to the gym as a class to start our program. Along with singing, a few students from our room will have speaking parts. These parts can be memorized. WE are excited to entertain you all! Invite everyone you know to come-no limit! 

All of the 4th grade kids have created something to show you about our beautiful state. To see what they have created, you may come before the program 5:00-5:30, or after the performance at about 7:00. Our class display will be in our classroom.

Utah History Program


We are having a Utah Program at Quest (Q1) Academy. All of the 4th grade students will be singing different Utah songs for you. Best dress (what you would wear to a wedding or church) or school uniform please. Along with singing, 8 students from our room will have speaking parts.They have already accepted and have been practicing their parts. These parts need to be memorized. If your child does not have a speaking part, they are still a vital part of our program and their attendance is crucial to the success of our program.

We are excited to entertain you all! Invite everyone you know to come-no limit! All of the 4th grade kids have created something to show you about our beautiful state. They will be displayed afterwards in our class. 


The BFG is a Big Friendly Giant that wants to live among the “human beans.” Our task is to create a practical item that the BFG could use in our world. However, our regular size item will not be big enough.

BFG Project Requirements:

The item your child chooses to make for the BFG must be 4 times the size of a regular “human bean” item. Examples might include a toothbrush, books, car keys, socks, candy bar, etc. (We will go over the math needed to figure out how to enlarge an everyday item.)

The item must be practical. We need to be able to carry the item to and from school easily 😉

Have fun with this project as it is something for them to enjoy using their imagination and creativity for the hard work they have put in all year! Thank you for all you do and your continued support this year!

Fourth Grade Field Trip to Cark Planetarium-Thursday, March 28th 2024

Please fill out this Google Form to give your student permission

Please pay the Quest Q1 office the following donation: (this donation just helps offset fees)

Adult chaperones: $8 *if chosen as a class chaperone.

Student planetarium: $3

FIELD DAY FUN: $2 *While you are paying these fees, please pay the field day donation too. 

I will be lottery-choosing 6 chaperones for the Field Trip. Please indicate on the Google form if interested.

We will be using the Frontrunner. Students will need to be dropped off and picked up at the Roy station by their guardians. There will NOT be transportation from Quest to or from the train station.

DROP OFF: Students should plan to arrive at the station no later than 8:00 AM.  THE TRAIN will pull out at 8:15am  THERE WILL NOT BE A TEACHER AT THE STATION BEFORE 7:45am TO TEND ANY CHILD.

PICK-UP: We will arrive back at the Roy station at 2:45 PM. STUDENTS MUST BE PICKED UP BETWEEN 2:45-3:00 pm. 

Please indicate on the Google form if your student will be needing a school lunch or home lunch. If you didn’t order a sack lunch from the school, send your child with a lunch that day that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. They will carry their own lunches. If they did order school lunch, it would be given to them that morning. 

Send your child with a small jacket, bags/backpack to carry their lunches, and a water bottle. No electronic devices (games/phones) are allowed on the field trip. They may bring something small to play with on the Frontrunner. For example, a deck of cards, a small pack of crayons/notebook, or a figurine/fidget toy. Nothing that will bounce away from them or cause a mess. No gum. Apply sunscreen beforehand and send some if your child may need more. We will be eating lunch outside.

Email your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
